Meet the Guards
Maddie Page - Programming Head Lifeguard
Hey guys! My name is Maddie and I am super excited to be back at Forest Edge! This will be my thirteenth summer at the pool, and my third time as Head Guard. I think that it's pretty safe to say that I LOVE this place!! I am heading into my third year of university at Western doing my undergrad in Kinesiology, with aspirations of becoming a Child Life Specialist. This summer I will be competing in a few triathlons and will be training for a mud race in the fall! My absolute favourite pool game is Go Go Ghost, and I am always willing to play a couple of rounds! I cannot wait to spend another summer at the best pool in the world, see you poolside!!
